This has profound consequences on how we validate the content, accelerating the fake news problem and even affecting the legal system in the countries which accept videos as evidence.<div><br></div><div>Imagine a video showing leader of a country discussing pre-emptive strike on another country, only that content of the video is not real but an ultra realistic deep fake video, but in the age of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias">confirmation bias</a>; we cannot expect people to validate everything they see or hear (if that was possible, fake news problem wouldn't exist in first place).</div><div><br></div><div>There are <a href="https://needgap.com/problems/20">ethical use cases for deep fake video</a>&nbsp;but there would be no stopping to exploitation of the deep fake tech for nefarious means. Hence there is a need gap for building tools which can be integrated in the systems for validating information.</div> 3 points posted by Abishek Muthian /problems/21-deep-fake-video-detection-fakenews-machinelearning 21 Mon, 02 Sep 2019 14:17:00 +0000 Deep Fake video generating SW for ethical usage #DeepFake #MachineLearning Deep Fake <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQ54GDm1eL0">video</a>&nbsp;is where the facial expression, <a href="https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-37899902">speech</a>&nbsp;of the person shown in the video aren't real and is computer generated using Machine Learning. Though the generation of deep fake videos fairly simple with right ML tools and setup, it is not yet available as a commercial grade software; though <a href="https://www.ohadf.com/projects/text-based-editing/">it may change soon</a>.<div><br></div><div>There's lot of controversy surrounding deep fake videos for right reasons, as it could accelerate the Fake News/ Misinformation problem, but this need gap is for the ethical usage of deep fake (needs better name?) videos.</div><div><br></div><div>Online video consumption is growing at unprecedented rate, people spend inordinate amount of time (6hrs-8hrs/week) watching videos. Traditional content formats such as text, has already fallen out of favour. For someone who cannot indulge in the physical effort of creating videos can only rely upon deep fake video tech to generate video for them when a script is fed to it.</div><div><br></div><div>Besides, deep fake videos can save video production cost for all.</div> 3 points posted by Abishek Muthian /problems/20-deep-fake-video-generating-sw-for-ethical-usage-deepfake-machinelearning 20 Mon, 02 Sep 2019 12:39:00 +0000
